    I agree...I do not like the new kickstart menu. But the old kickstart will still be available in the KDE app store.

    New Application Launcher

    Plasma 5.21 introduces a new application launcher that features a double-pane UI, improvements to keyboard and mouse navigation, better accessibility and support for languages with RTL writing.

    The new launcher includes an alphabetical “All Applications” view, a grid-style favorites view, and power actions visible by default with their labels.

    Last but not least, we have fixed most of the bugs reported by users, guaranteeing a smoother access to all your stuff.

    The old Kickoff app launcher is still available at store.kde.org.

    Bold italics is my edit.

      The first thing I do is replacing the "Application Launcher" with "Application Menu" - way less clicks and much more organised. I wish it would be the default.

      Other than that I am totally stoked for the upcoming updates!

Because of that, I switched to another editor after this "patch" got upstream. If you really don't trust on your own code, then simply implement a right-dropping mode with the exception to the to be edited file and directory.
        I agree. I too use text editors and Krusader as root, so not being able to use Kate as root is hindering my workflow.

          Looks like they just ported over Lancelot's code, re-organized a few things and called it a day.

            I do that too. That's why we use KDE: there's no one size fits all.

              Why not just use it then?

              Alternatively, one can just make Plasma into a Unity clone (A quick search shows multiple ways to do this in Plasma)

                      Interesting...I am running KDE Neon and I have not had an issue - although to be honest, I may have tweaked something. I am on my work computer now, so I cannot check.
